The Basics

A soak in the famous Blue Lagoon is a must for visitors to Reykjavik. Booking ahead is required, and there are several options and extras to choose from, including towels, bathrobes, spa treatments, and special face masks. On-site facilities include a hotel, restaurant, café, bar, and spa shop.

Tours are the easiest and most convenient way to experience the lagoon complex, as most include hotel pickup and round-trip transport from Reykjavik. Some even combine a Blue Lagoon visit with other activities such as a city sightseeing tour, a Golden Circle tour, or a whale-watching cruise.

My Adventure in Reykjavik
Thor was an awesome and funny Tour Guide! Never a boring moment with this guy! The 11-hour Golden Circle and Kerid Volcanic Crater Tours were breathtaking and my Blue Lagoon experience was very memorable. Just know that the Blue Lagoon admission was booked by myself, separately from the latter tours possibly because I booked this tour at the last minute; literally the day before it. Twas a fun time!

Blue Lagoon Admission Including Transfer
We arrive from the airport directly to the Blue Lagoon at 10am. There was no bus pickup, because of the COVID-19, authorities wouldn’t permit the bus going to the airport in July, but Marina Travel arrange a taxi pickup, and it was just perfect !! Arriving early was great and the 2 hours we stayed were enough, then there was the bus to take us to our hotel in Reykjavik. Definitely I recommend this tour

Small-Group Golden Circle & Blue Lagoon Tour Including Admission
Due to covid, the trip was a combination of several trips. We basically had a trip with all the musts of Golden circle including tomato farm lunch plus several small extras and a visit to the Blue Lagoon. 14 hours with a lot of highlights with a great and fun guide, Hjörtur(? I'm not 100% sure of the name.) There was a lot of info, good humor and help during all the 14 hours of the extended trip.

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
It was a wonderful tour. Our guide was very informative and the trip was well organized. There were plenty of stops for restrooms and food. We saw waterfalls, geysers, and the crater. We also got to pet Icelandic horses. The Blue Lagoon was an amazing experience. Everything was wonderful.

Golden Circle Impresses, Blue Lagoon relaxes

Small-Group Golden Circle & Blue Lagoon Tour Including Admission
Our tour guide, HBO, was the most informative that we had all week. He gave us details about the topography and the history of each stop. Walking in the National park, seeing the geyser and the Kerid crater were all fabulous experiences, but the waterfall was the highlight of the tour. We had seen the falls on the south coast, but the Gullfoss waterfall was awe inspiring. The last stop, at the Blue Lagoon, was a perfect way to end the tour.

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
The guide was very nice and informative and answered everyone's questions. He took us to a couple of nice extra stops as well which was a bonus. The geyser, crator and Blue Lagoon were worth paying the money for. Would recommend.

When to Get There

The Healing Powers of the Blue Lagoon

The geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon are typically heated to between 98°F and 104°F (37°C and 40°C), and are famous for their high levels of silica, algae, and minerals, which explain the lagoon's cloudy blue appearance. The mineral-rich waters have long been reputed for their healing properties and are reported to help skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema. If you'd like to do more than soak, there is also a sauna, steam room, man-made waterfall, silica mud masks, and in-water massages.
